Microsoft Hungary Subsidiary Raided
Hungarian authorities have raided the offices of Microsoft Magyarorszag, the Redmond company's subsidiary in the country. Regulators believe Microsoft abused its position in the market to force computer makers sell only Office and no competing products.
"The GVH sensed that (Microsoft) likely applied a system of conditions and benefits -- rewards for loyalty -- for the most significant software distributors which gave no incentive to these distributors in selling other products competing with Microsoft Office software," the agency said on its Web site, according to Reuters. Microsoft has not commented on the news.
